Easy Ways to Achieve Morning Mindfulness

Let's be real, mornings are not my favourite and when it rolls around, I hit snooze at least a few times. But of course, like everyone else in the world we have to work hard to play hard - to accomplish dreams, have relationships, and be surrounded by friends and loving people.

To do so, you need to attain happiness - I'm here to share my insights and tips to being happy as happiness lies in your daily habits. The way you decide to start your morning often sets the stage for how the rest of the day unfolds. Life isn't perfect and we all have our off days - anything can happen in the present moment but how we start our day can often affect how we approached challenges throughout the day. So let's win the morning so you can win the day folks!

With a focused mind and energized body to start your day, you have the ability to thrive and kick butt with the inevitable ups and downs that you get handed. If you want to be more successful, or let's be real, just get out of bed feeling happier and less groggy (hands up!), below are few tips that may just help you start your day more positively and nurture your morning:

Wake up Early
This isn't for everyone as I'm guilty of snoozing my alarm clock but with that being said, everyone has their own morning schedule that gets them going for the day.  Some choose to wake up at 6 AM and enjoy their cup of joe, while others rush out the door because they decided to binge watch a show on Netflix at 2AM the night before. I'm not saying staying up late is a bad idea (hey, I love Netflix and chilling), but there's an alternative way to help make your morning more beneficial for you. That might just be giving yourself more time in the morning and establishing a good morning ritual by going to sleep earlier and waking up earlier.

Smile in the Mirror
While you are doing your hair or simply getting dressed, a quick smile in the mirror will boost your moral. We are all human and have our faults, so we need to accept ourselves and our imperfections. Or better yet put on some tunes and do a little dance if that's what gets you grooving to a positive morning.

Create a Tea or Coffee Ritual
Take the time to sit down and enjoy your morning drink of choice. Watching a minute or two of the sun coming up is an instant uplift to your energy and sets the tone for a positive start to the day.

Eat Breakfast Mindfully
Breakfast gives you energy throughout the day but most importantly, it fires up your metabolism to get your brain and muscles going in the morning. Whether it is a granola bar, cereal or a croissant - take a moment to fill your belly and nourish your senses.

Connect with Nature
Reward yourself with fresh air and get outside. Live in the moment and connect with your senses. Three deep breathes usually does the trick for me to regain focus and get motivate for the day.

Recite Positive Affirmations
Morning positive affirmations are the core to a beautiful day - take a deep breath in the morning and begin your day with fresh and motivated mind. You deserve to a great day and exude confidence as well as happiness. Example include: "I choose to be happy right now. I love my life," "I am thankful for all that I have" and "I choose to work with a focused mind."
